  1. gee maybe dr.’s could use uber to show up at a patients place – actually make house calls – so novel.
    BTW: I don’t have a Dr. and will not ever go to the Dr.s office that is full of germs and synthetic prescription drugs – ugg nope.

  2. On demand house calls… just like on demand movies, and on demand sports, etc. Comes at a price for one. And you need a smart phone for an app, along with the cost of the smart phone’s service.

    I wouldn’t be able to use it if I wanted to, because I won’t have a smart phone. Damn; don’t have any credit cards either. Whatever will I do?

  3. Patients are now customers ,um nice sales pitch

  4. “Permissionless Innovation”. So the Medical establishment is turning into a Fast-food. Plus the Wright brothers were trying to invent something out of nothing with no casualties… You’re dealing with people’s lives here! Why waste my breathe, i’m sure people will be requesting this “awesome” new service.!!

  5. I like this idea. Isn’t this what use to be in the old days? House call for the doctor is nothing new. The drug company may not like this.
